“Tucked back into the canyon”

Reviewed 6/16/2019

Nightly rate: $3
Overall Rating

This primitive campground is the last one on the 570 along the Rio Grande. It's tucked back into the canyon on the dirt road extension of 570 and the sites are mostly surrounded by brush. It's a bit unclear which pullouts are sites and which are just parking spots for hikers or randoms. As far as I could tell the actual camp sites were not along the river but I did see a few folks camped in what I thought were just pullouts.

There is a camphost on site at least sometimes and restrooms near their site.

The area is great if you want to sit by the river, go on hikes or launch your boat for a float.

The big negative for me is absolutely zero cell service in the canyon on T-mobile or Verizon, but with a booster/antenna you might have more luck.

“Great, free campsites; Potentially challenging drive in”

My girlfriend and I camped here for a night and would definitely do so again. Primitive campgrounds were clean and well maintained. Our site was super quiet, near the camp host, and in close proximity to the Rio Grande.

The only trouble we had was driving our Honda Fit into the canyon from the south. I'd suggest driving in from Taos through Pilar for an easy, paved drive. Ours was pretty challenging!
